Back in February, we showed you the first trailer of the newest instalment of the Ghost in the Shell franchise, Ghost in the Shell: Arise. With the Japanese theatre release of the first chapter, border: 1 Ghost Pain, a week away, fans are getting a special gift: the first eight minutes of the film are now online.
There are currently two versions to choose from. The first, from the Japanese PlayStation channel, has the whole clip in glorious HD (see below). Sadly it lacks subtitles. Luckily, the version found on the official Japanese Ghost in the Shell page (see the top of the page) has English and Chinese captions — though the clip is only in SD quality.
Ghost in the Shell: Arise border: 1 Ghost Pain will be released in Japanese theatres on June 22, 2013. No international release date has been announced but the Japanese Blu-Rays, which include English subtitles, will be released on July 26, 2013.
